Palin: Jason Smith for Missouri’s 8th Congressional District

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on May 15, 2013

Smith_Jason_MO2013Posted to Governor Sarah Palin’s Facebook page earlier this afternoon:

 

Jason Smith for Missouri’s 8th Congressional District

Jason has worked tirelessly to build on the foundation of his humble beginnings and is a responsible and respected leader in the Show Me State. In Washington DC, Jason will maintain that innate sense of his community and will bring his commonsense conservatism to the halls of Congress. Jason recognizes that government is the problem, not the solution. He will protect our 2ndAmendment rights and work to promote a culture of life. We must all work together to send Mr. Smith to Washington on June 4th.

– Sarah Palin

Republic High School’s Senior Class Waged Social Media Campaign to Land Governor Palin as Commencement Speaker

Posted by Dr. Fay on May 15, 2013

 

A charming story of how a high school class of 27 landed a graduation speech by Governor Palin.

Sarah Palin to speak at Republic HS graduation

By   The Spokesman-Review
____________

Tyler Weyer and his fellow seniors at Republic High School began considering possible commencement speakers last fall.

Confronting them was the reality that the most likely speaker would be a popular teacher or a standout community member. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

But Weyer had a crazy thought. “I said, ‘Hey, let’s just get Sarah Palin,’ ” said Weyer, the 17-year-old senior class president at Republic High.

[…]

RHS principal Shawn Anderson said Weyer has been an enthusiastic and outspoken fan of Palin’s for a few years. A young man with a strong interest in politics and government, “Tyler … and Sarah Palin kind of went hand in hand,” Anderson said.

When Weyer threw out the notion of inviting Palin last fall, he was encouraged by his teachers and Anderson. Why not give it a shot?

Weyer typed an invitation, Anderson had it put on school letterhead and signed it, and it went off to Palin’s parents. Weyer had tried to reach Palin through official sources in the past, with no success, and so he thought going through her parents might work better – and they were listed in the phone book. Soon thereafter, Weyer received an e-mail response from “one of her people” that was noncommittal.

“To be honest, I really wasn’t surprised that the message got to Sarah,” Anderson said. “I really believed she would at least see the letter and maybe some of the e-mails.

“But I didn’t think our chances were so high.”

Months passed with no further word. In early April, still awaiting an answer and running out of time, Weyer decided to push things along.

“I got impatient, so I organized a class picture,” he said.

He got his classmates together in their class sweatshirts, and they made a banner: “We Want You! Governor Palin!” School librarian Kelly Scriver took the photo of them posing with the banner, and they posted it on Facebook.

And then – in what is becoming a familiar pattern in the age of social media – the sharing and the liking and the tweeting began. As word of the Class of ‘13’s efforts spread, people began lobbying Palin directly, via Facebook and other ways. Weyer said that Palin has some relatives living in the Republic area, which might have helped bring their efforts some attention, and Palin herself was born not far away in Sandpoint, where her parents have a long history.

Whatever it was, something finally broke through. As Weyer put it, “the right word got to the right people.”

He received another e-mail, wanting to know: “Can we just get the date and time again?”

“That was definitely more promising,” he said.

Then came another e-mail from Palin’s people – this time to set up a phone call with him and school officials.

“People told me I looked pale as a sheet when I got that e-mail,” Weyer said. “I said, ‘Oh my goodness. I’m getting pretty excited. Something’s going to happen here.’”

On April 18, Weyer and school officials had the phone call with Palin’s representative, and learned that Palin would be coming to graduation.

“It was worth a million dollars to see the look on (Weyer’s) face,” Anderson said.

Anderson’s priority is to preserve the event as a commencement ceremony – something focused on the students and their families.

“This isn’t going to be a circus and this isn’t going to be a political statement,” he said.

Weyer says that Palin’s representatives have expressed similar wishes. “She doesn’t want a frenzy,” he said.

Still, certain frenzy-like elements are bound to accompany the appearance of a figure like Palin. Each graduate gets 20 tickets to distribute for the 1 p.m. commencement ceremony on June 1, and then admission to the small gym will be first-come, first-served. There’s room for around 700 people; Anderson expects he’ll be turning people away.

Weyer said the event is the talk of the 1,000-resident town.

“Everyone’s asking for tickets,” he said. “Everyone’s very ecstatic.”

Gov. Palin: Buck stops with Obama; Worst abuse of power since Watergate

Posted by Dr. Fay on May 15, 2013

_____________

The Obama administration is embroiled in three scandals this week, with a CIA source hinting another shoe is about to drop.  Governor Palin reminded Obama in this tweet that he is ultimately responsible.

___________
Governor Palin did not link to the following article, but I thought it would provide some background to her reference to Hillary Clinton.  I also think the question Hillary asked Nixon is an appropriate one to be asking the current President.

Hillary Clinton Fired From Watergate Committee for Fraud Ethics Violations

Hillary Clinton Fired From Watergate Committee for Fraud, Ethics Violations

Hillary_Clinton_Watergate_Fired_From_Staff

By Johnny Simpson

Apr 2, 2008 in Politics

The former general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, who supervised Hillary during the Watergate investigation, says her history of lies and unethical behavior goes back farther – and goes much deeper – than anyone realizes.

[…]

Now comes this bombshell from Jerry Zeifman, who supervised a much younger Hillary Clinton when she worked as a staffer for the Watergate committee:

‘A lifelong Democrat, Mr. Zeifman supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation – one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman’s 17-year career.’

Why?

“Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said in an interview last week. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.’

Mr. Zeifman also had this to say about a Hillary campaign rally in Connecticut in early February of this year:

‘I have just seen Hillary Clinton and her former Yale law professor both in tears at a campaign rally here in my home state of Connecticut. Her tearful professor said how proud he was that his former student was likely to become our next President. Hillary responded in tears.’

‘My own reaction was of regret that, when I terminated her employment on the Nixon impeachment staff, I had not reported her unethical practices to the appropriate bar associations.’

This is no small potatoes, like the cattle futures dustoff. From Mr.Zeifman’s account, Hillary and others on the Committee, including former senior associate special counsel (and future Clinton White House Counsel) Bernard Nussbaum – engaged in a seemingly implausible scheme to deny Richard Nixon the right to counsel during the investigation by stealing Judiciary Committee files on the only precedent case that could have stonewalled their plot and drafting a legal brief that, according to Mr. Ziefman, “was so fraudulent and ridiculous Hillary would have been disbarred if she had submitted it to a judge.”

[…]

Stay tuned, people. This one isn’t over. Not by a long shot.
